GSAP HTML5 Banner that use Smartphone Accelerometer

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Starting from 0 here.

 

My boss has asked if a GSAP HTML5 Banner that use Smartphone Accelerometer is possible.

 

The idea would be that i multilayered image with a foreground, mid-ground and background would 'move' with the tilt on a smartphone.

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks for any help,

 

Phil

I've never done it personally, but it seems totally doable. It's unrelated to GSAP, though. A quick Google search resulted in:

With the right hooks in place, you should be able to create the effect you're after. Let us know how it goes. We'd love to see the final result (and hear about any tips and tricks you discover along the way)

Here are some other useful links that might help. It's just setting up the right events to detect and have your animation with GSAP do different stuff depending on the orientation and rotation.
